About the conference
The AMOSSHE National Conference brings together a wealth of experience and expertise, which makes it the ideal forum to explore key themes for Student Services in higher education.
The conference takes place from Wednesday 26 to Friday 28 June 2024 at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Glasgow, Scotland, UK.
The conference is for in-person delegates only. Sessions at the conference will not be recorded or streamed online.
The conference explores how Student Services leaders and professionals can be more:
- Collaborative - working together with colleagues and students across and between our institutions, as well as statutory services, local and national associations, governments and charities, and other higher education providers in the UK and abroad.
- Supportive - delivering excellent services and opportunities that meet the needs of our diverse student populations, while also supporting ourselves and our colleagues to thrive and develop.
- Influential - taking a lead in professional innovation and practice, setting and attaining high standards, and sharing expertise and good practice to help raise the standard and reach of all our work.
Call for session proposals
We’re looking for contributors to lead sessions at our National Conference 2024. We want your proposals for informative and stimulating sessions that will engage delegates and contribute to everyone’s understanding and professional development.
Find out all about the call for proposals, and submit your session proposal, here: National Conference 2024: call for session proposals.
The cost of the conference depends on whether the delegate is:

- A non-member representing a corporate organisation.
Please make sure you choose the correct rate when you book (members need to log in to see the member rate).

Reduced fee places available to encourage participation
We want colleagues from across the higher education student support sector to take part in our National Conference 2024, including those who have less opportunity to engage with an event of this kind. We want to help with the professional development of colleagues who are:
- Starting on their Student Services leadership career (for example, early career professionals).
- Working in circumstances that limit their opportunities for professional development (for example, those from small and specialist organisations where resources for professional development are tight).
- From diverse backgrounds, who want to bring their perspectives and insights to the conference conversations and contribute to our network of Student Services leaders.
Two residential places are available at a reduced fee of £625 each for colleagues working in higher education support roles who might otherwise find it difficult to attend.
The reduced fee places are for all three days of the conference, and include accommodation at the conference venue, all meals and access to the evening events. Travel to and from the conference isn’t included, so you’ll need to arrange and pay for this yourself.
In return for the reduced fee place, we’ll ask you to write a short article about what you learned at the conference, the value of attending to your professional development, and how others might benefit by taking part. We’ll publish your article on our website.
Watch this space for more information about how to apply for one of the reduced fee places.
Booking for the conference opens in March 2024.
